we are trying to potty train savannah. so far its not going so well so i thought maybe i would ask you ladies that have done this before for your tips??? tia for any advice you can give im at my witts end. im tired of cleaning up so much poop between the cat box the twins and having to chase savannah around to clean out her pants.
She has lots of the signs that she is ready and did great for two days straight but now she wants nothing to do with it. Im trying to take it slow and not be pushy but the diapers leave a rash where they are rubbing her leg.
Have you tried just sticking her in big girl underpants? Marlowe pretty much intrinsically understood that she COULD NOT "go" in her big girl panties....So once we made the switch, it went very smoothly overall.

Yep....I would back off right now. I was trying it with my son too this past weekend.....he exhibited signs of being ready.....and he's definitely not ready. Right now isn't the time to do it with a new child in the home. and for you.....twins....The "experts" all say right after major changes is not a good time to do it. AND....we've got to wait until we can put ALL our attention on the one being potty trained. I would say right now probably isn't the best time for it. I'm backing off until summer now. I know my son will be 3 1/2. (If he's ready before that and lets me know he's ready, we'll do it earlier.) My daughter will be 2 so there is hopes of doing them at the same time. I'm frustrated too....and diapers are geting so expensive....but I don't have time for cleaning up pee all over my house either. GOod luck!
We tried big girl panties. She just went in them and then told me she did...im afraid i will never have time with three kids under two but she has to learn because of the rash and three kids in diapers is just to much. Im stopping until next week so i can get the stuff around the house out of the way so i will have a little more time with her. I think there is just to much going on right now with the twins all the sickness and i have a birthday and our vow renewal im trying to plan. Just busy busy busy. As i can hear both babies filling their pants and waking up to eat lol
We were working with Braiden on it and he was doing wonderfully, until we brought Alli home. Now he is showing no signs of being interested, so we have put it off for a little while, til he is more use to her and things aren't so hectic.
